Re: Camera and lenses for tango dancing parties

The 85mm should be your most used lens. It focuses very fast in low light compared to the 50mm. You will find that even if it is an USM the 50mm will hunt a lot.

Also the 5d mkii will be slow focusing compared to the 7d. Do you own a flash? Even if you do not fire it, the external flash could be used as focus assist. I shot several wedding with the 5d mk II and I always used the flash for focus assist.
